Libby Miller has always been an unwavering optimist--but when her husband drops a bomb on their marriage the same day a doctor delivers devastating news, she realizes her rose-colored glasses have actually been blinding her. With nothing left to lose, she abandons her life in Chicago for the clear waters and bright beaches of the Caribbean for what might be her last hurrah. Despite her new sunny locale, her plans go awry when she finds that she can't quite outrun the past or bring herself to face an unknowable future.

Will she risk it all to live--and love--a little longer?

Warning: This is an independent addition to Life and Other Near-Death Experiences, meant to enhance your experience of the original book. If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. INTROThe first couple chapters of this novel might as well have been called "Libby Ross and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day." Within a matter of hours, Libby learns that she has aggressive cancer and that her beloved husband Tom is gay. Having lost her own mother to cancer at the age of ten, Libby is well acquainted with the realities of such a diagnosis. Facing three to six months of loneliness and pain followed by death, she goes a little off the rails. Unable to bear the thought of breaking the news to her twin brother Paul, her father or her now estranged husband, and unwilling to subject herself to the horrors of chemotherapy Libby packs her bags and jet sets off to the remote island town of Vieques in Puerto Rico. She plans to spend her time there sealed away from the world, wrapping her head around her impending doom and enjoying life's little pleasures while she still has the time. Except that it's true what they say about best laid plans and life has plenty more surprises in store for Libby. A new adventure begins when she meets Shiloh, an enigmatic pilot who pays no attention to the walls Libby tries to put up around herself. As their relationship develops, Libby is forced to take a step back and reconsider the snap decisions she has made about her sickness, and the effects those decisions will have on the people she loves - and who love her. Life and Other Near Death Experiences is a quick read that nonetheless manages to pack an emotional punch. As a protagonist, Libby is occasionally insufferable and sometimes even downright cruel to those around her, but that's what makes the book so refreshingly honest. As stated on the very first page, this isn't Eat, Pray, Love. Instead it's a story of how much life can suck sometimes and what people do to deal with that.Available on PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device. (c) 2015 All Rights Reserved

A fantastically funny, bittersweet story of second guesses and second chances. Rob Garland is getting married in two months. Oddly, however, this is the least of his problems. More vexing than the seating arrangements, the choice of wedding stationery - more even that the savagely obscene expense of everything - is the fact that Rob should be dead: and he knows it. Faced with an ultimatum from his girlfriend to either sort himself out, or call the wedding (and the whole relationship) off, he sets about trying to come to terms with how it is that, somehow, he's still inexplicably breathing. After pouring his heart out to the listeners on his late-night radio jazz show, he soon finds himself teamed up with others who really ought not to be alive, but who - for random, meaningless and, frankly, stupid reasons - unaccountably are. And that's when things become yet more worrying: because it turns out that their search to understand why they've each remained oddly alive might very well end up killing them all. Love, death, religious beliefs, existential angst - Love and Other Near-Death Experiences is a jack-knifing comedy about those things which should be no laughing matter.

A new collection of immersive essays from the most acclaimed editor of the second half of the twentieth century This new collection from the legendary editor Robert Gottlieb features twenty or so pieces he’s written mostly for The New York Review of Books, ranging from reconsiderations of American writers such as Dorothy Parker, Thornton Wilder, Thomas Wolfe (“genius”), and James Jones, to Leonard Bernstein, Lorenz Hart, Lady Diana Cooper (“the most beautiful girl in the world”), the actor-assassin John Wilkes Booth, the scandalous movie star Mary Astor, and not-yet president Donald Trump. The writings compiled here are as various as they are provocative: an extended probe into the world of post-death experiences; a sharp look at the biopics of transcendent figures such as Shakespeare, Molière, and Austen; a soap opera-ish movie account of an alleged affair between Chanel and Stravinsky; and a copious sampling of the dance reviews he’s been writing for The New York Observer for close to twenty years. A worthy successor to his expansive 2011 collection, Lives and Letters, and his admired 2016 memoir, Avid Reader, Near-Death Experiences displays the same insight and intellectual curiosity that have made Gottlieb, in the words of The New York Times’s Dwight Garner, “the most acclaimed editor of the second half of the twentieth century.”

What happens to consciousness during the act of dying? The most compelling answers come from people who almost die and later recall events that occurred while lifesaving resuscitation, emergency care, or surgery was performed. These events are now called near-death experiences (NDEs). As medical and surgical skills improve, innovative procedures can bring back patients who have traveled farther on the path to death than at any other time in history. Physicians and healthcare professionals must learn how to appropriately treat patients who report an NDE. It is estimated that more than 10 million people in the United States have experienced an NDE. Hagan and the contributors to this volume engage in evidence-based research on near-death experiences and include physicians who themselves have undergone a near-death experience. This book establishes a new paradigm for NDEs.
